Nintendo Reportedly To Launch SNES Classic

Nintendo Reportedly To Launch SNES Classic

In other words, the classic edition will no longer be re-stocked once the stock runs out.

We have cross referenced the iStockNow alerts with the BrickSeek. At this point it is not clear if the iStockNow information is correct. Once it became clear that wasn't going to happen, I promised to snag one after the holiday, when I was certain demand would fall.

But a new development within Nintendo has possibly answered our question as to WHY the company chose to end its production in the first place - and it's pretty exciting. Which probably means that the SNES Classic Mini, if that's what it ends up being called, will be harder to find than its NES counterpart.

Now, how valid and real is this report?

That a small, throwback SNES would be in the works has been suggested by fans and observers since the NES Classic proved such a hit in 2016.

Eurogamer is claiming sources close to the company have told them a shrunken down version of the SNES - Super Nintendo Entertainment System - which was first released in the United Kingdom in 1992, is in Nintendo's plans for later this year. The supply was extremely constraint in stores and especially online.

Sources speaking to Eurogamer say that "Nintendo's plans for SNES mini are also a major reason why last year's NES mini did not see a reprieve from discontinuation, Eurogamer understands, despite the latter's continued popularity and sell-out status". The last shipments of the NES Classic arrive through April. Now, the news outlet has revealed that Nintendo has confirmed that it will cease the production of the device but then it is yet to be known if the suspension of production will be worldwide.

Neither could they add extra NES games to the console, as it could not link up with Nintendo's Virtual Console service present on more modern hardware, unless they overwrote the Classic's software with a different operating system and imported another suite of emulated games, which some chose to do.
